Too Generous

Sharing Options

Those who don’t see the problem coming are not usually prevailed upon to see the problem even after it has arrived. Those who do not see the problems with the emerging church will usually defend the problems even after they emerged. A “generous orthodoxy” ought not to mean giving that orthodoxy away. But here is McLaren, with a particularly egregious giving away of the store. The Christian faith “should become (in the name of Jesus Christ) a welcome friend to other religions of the world, not a threat. We should be seen as a protector of their heritages, a defender against common enemies . . .”

The difference between hard postmodernism and the emergent, soft forms is the difference between a woman who has had the baby and a woman who is seven months along.
